3 Aussie stocks for today's market

The Rules of Investing

Livewire Markets

Rising rates, rising volatility, and rising geopolitical tensions. It's tough being an equity investor in today's market. 

But Australian investors have generally fared better than most. With a heavy skew towards resources and financials, both of which have outperformed the broader index in recent months, the ASX 300 has outperformed the S&P 500 by nearly 5%. 

In the latest episode of The Rules of Investing podcast, I speak to John Lockton, Head of Investment Strategy at WILSONS. He shares his views on the banking, resources, and healthcare sectors following the recent reporting season, he tells us about one important macro issue the market is overlooking, and we hear about several Aussie stocks with significant upside.

Discussion topics:

  • 2:00 - Should we be considering the war in Ukraine when making investment decisions?
  • 4:37 - The macro issue that's flying under the radar
  • 7:41 - The high level trends in reporting season
  • 11:13 - What's the outlook for Australia's biggest sectors?
  • 16:54 - The sectors best placed as rates rise
  • 20:40 - Why Macquarie Group is well placed for current conditions
  • 25:18 - Two small caps with significant upside
  • 30:00 - John answers our three favourite questions.
